Yeah that's the cut out part when they cut/burn it off I guess both sides should be air tight?

Yes that is the part they cut out. They test for leaks because if this part has a leak then in all probabilty the part still left inside does too.

that's the portion removed . Not even MX would they put a live organ on the gurney ;)

Only guess I take is they check for leaks because it's the same zipper line burned closure thingy they used on the other side of the stomached left inside. Therefore both should be airtight. I don't know.. Just a guess

Just guessing, but wouldn't they also check it for leaks to make sure nothing leaked out of it prior to pulling it out? You wouldn't want to get septic from anything coming out of either side of the stomach, right?

I have a drain, so I'm pretty sure that's where the juices would go. Ew, juices.

Yes, they check both sides for reasons mentioned above.

I just asked before, if he could take a pic. I have some of it being cut and my sleeve too. Those will have to wait.

And Laura, shame on you, blasting mx surgeries!! :P
